You can pay your tuition fees by monthly Direct Debit through Open University Student Budget Accounts Ltd (OUSBA). This convenient 'pay as you go' option is a secure, quick and easy way to pay your fees on a module-by-module basis.
With OUSBA you can:
Pay by instalments – OUSBA Ltd pays the OU your full module fee at registration and you repay the loan to OUSBA Ltd in monthly instalments starting a month after your module begins. Currently, interest is charged at 5.0 per cent (Annual Percentage Rate 5.1 per cent) and is only applied once your module has commenced. This is an exclusive rate that is only available to OU students.
Register now, pay later – OUSBA Ltd pays your full module fee direct to us. You can repay OUSBA interest-free and in full just before your module starts. This option could give you the extra time you may need to secure the funding for your module.

You can pay part or all of your tuition fees upfront securely with a debit or credit card. We accept most well known credit and debit cards.
